Lady Tigers prepare for postseason at pre-region meet
The Lady Tigers set the stage for a successful Region 3A Meet by taking third place at the pre-region at Lakeview Golf Course in Mitchell on Monday.
“It was a good day for a warmer-upper,” said coach Jason Weisbeck. “The girls realized that if they play a little better and beat Wagner, they can bring home some hardware.”
Before the meet, Weisbeck stated that the pre-region would hold some new challenges; much quicker greens, Parkston, a bit more challenging course, and Parkston.
Bringing up Parkston twice proved to be two times short as the Parkston girls took the first four places in the meet, led by medalist Sydney Bormann. The eighth-grader shot 82 to win the meet.
Michelle McClellan beat everyone but the Parkston girls to take fifth place. McClellan shot 47-45-92. Chelsy Hoffman came in seventh with 46-52-98. The other teammates were farther back as Emily Dale took 18th, Aundrea Kramer 19th and Miranda Eisemann 28th. The imaginary cut was at 26 so the top four girls would have earned automatic berths in the state tournament.
“The way we finished, we would take the whole team to state,” said Weisbeck. “That is exciting.”
The top three teams in the region qualify for state, but Weisbeck said his Lady Tigers would like to make up the 13 strokes they finished behind Wagner and take home the second-place plaque.
“The possibility of beating Wagner is a challenge I think the girls are up for,” said Weisbeck.
The Lady Tigers and the rest of the region will return to Lakeview Golf Course on Monday for the Region 3A Golf Tournament. The Class A Golf Tournament will be at Southern Hills Golf Course in Hot Springs on May 21 and 22.
